In a New York court ruling, an 11-year-old girl has been ordered to get the COVID vaccine despite the wishes of her father who is a scientist and college professor.
A divorced couple, Jeannie Figer and Donald Figer, went to court over whether their 11-year-old daughter should be vaccinated against COVID. Her father, a director at the Rochester Institute of Technology, has expressed his objections to rushing the jab for his daughter despite a lack of studies regarding the long-term side effects the vaccine may have on kids.
Donald is vaccinated, but he worries about the potential impact on his young child given the lack of research and data on the new vaccines. On the other hand, his wife who works as an attorney, wants her daughter vaccinated.
The Supreme Court Judge, Richard Dollinger, seemed in a rather unreasonable hurry to get this girl vaccinated, stating in his ruling that “waiting – to be ‘sure’, as the father asks – is simply untenable, when the specter of a killing or incapacitating disease is swirling in the environment surrounding this young girl”.
It does not appear that the 11-year-old has any preexisting health conditions that would put her at risk if she gets COVID-19, therefore the vaccination is not imperative to her personal safety. Despite the scientist’s concern for his daughter’s safety, as well as the fact that she has no underlying health conditions, the judge ruled that the daughter should be vaccinated as soon as possible.
Although the young girl is likely put at greater risk by getting the insufficiently tested vaccine, it is on par with the Liberal agenda to insist that she is immediately vaccinated regardless of all data (or lack thereof).
